Jennifer Pharr Davis, two-time Appalachian Trail thru-hiker, will speak about the many challenges and lessons that present themselves along the trail, showing slides from more than 12,000 miles of long distance hiking, which she has completed on six different continents. After her presentation, she will sign copies of her new book, Called Again: A Story of Love and Triumph. With the support of her husband, Brew, and a dedicated group of volunteers, dubbed the “Pit Crew,” Jen hiked, stumbled and sometimes crawled the 2,181-mile Appalachian Trail in 46 days (an average of 47 miles per day), becoming the fastest person to hike the trail and the first woman to ever set the mark. She’s been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, NPR’s Talk of the Nation, Guideposts magazine and the CBS Morning Show, but Jen’s story is not about records of numbers; it’s about endurance, faith and most of all, love. Come hear an exciting and inspiring presentation from this world-class athlete and wilderness adventurer!

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and a catastrophe looms. A riotous farce that recently enjoyed hit revivals in London and New York, Boeing Boeing is now set to arrive in Jet City - fasten your seat belts!
